Paolo Bray, Director and Founder of Friend of the Sea, also highlights the importance of this new collaboration. “Friend of the Sea is very proud to work with FairPrice on protecting our Oceans,” he explains. “We made consumers in Singapore aware of how their responsible choices can encourage sustainable fishing and aquaculture practices.”
